The Boston Bruins couldn’t lock up the Presidents’ Trophy thanks to a stinker in a 2-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.
That, more Boston Bruins, and NHL news in the latest Bruins Daily:
The Boston Bruins failed to clinch the Presidents’ Trophy on Tuesday night as they laid an absolute egg in a 2-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.
The Boston Bruins did get some good news earlier in the day as Bruins winger Nick Foligno skated with the team (in a non-contact jersey), for the first time since suffering a lower-body injury on Feb. 28.
New Boston Bruins winger Garnet Hathaway has assumed a similar role to the one he played with the Washington Capitals before being traded to the Bruins on Feb. 23. As a result, he has seamlessly fit in on the team’s fourth/grind line.
